Visual learner, auditory, kinesthetic, reading/writing based…you’ve heard the terms, but which learning style suits your child best?
Knowing your child’s learning style can make a world of difference in your homeschool as you navigate curriculum choices, study habits, and any extra activities you incorporate.
Are you activating your child’s best learning style in your homeschool? When you do, you can make choices about how you teach that play to their strengths, help them feel successful, and help them achieve their full potential. Plus, when your child is aware of their own learning style, they can use that knowledge to succeed throughout their entire lives.
Seeing the differences in how each of my kids learn, knowing those differences are okay and what to do about them in our homeschool makes a HUGE difference!
What are the different learning styles?
There are 4 main types of learning styles, although some people may not fit into just one category. The learning styles are:
What helps visual learners? Charts, graphs, maps, diagrams…basically any visual image that is used to explain a concept or idea. These are your kiddos who doodle, take notes, or make lists.
What helps kinesthetic learners? Being able to use physical means to apply new info. They love demonstrations, science projects, role playing, and they may have a hard time sitting still!
What helps auditory learners? Hearing the lessons! Audio books, lectures, discussions, and talking through topics. They are the kiddos who like to read out loud to process info.
What helps reading/writing learners? Written notes, book reports, study guides. They might love looking up information on the internet or in books (there is a little overlap here with the visual learning category!)
So which learning style suits your child?
Take this handy quiz below to find out which learning style suits your child the best!
